Triple chocolate delight and a MasterChef surprise for Theo

Triple chocolate delight and a MasterChef surprise for Theo

The Crowborough charity fulfils bucket lists for children with long-term illness, while also providing holistic support to their families. To date, it has organised more than 850 ‘dreams’.

Twelve-year-old Theo Acha wanted to learn how to bake a triple chocolate cake from an expert and then have an afternoon tea.

That expert was Hollie O’Callaghan from Hollie’s Little Cakery in The Pantiles, who showed Theo her exquisite baking and decorating skills.

Once Theo had mastered the cake-making, she moved on to the Hotel du Vin in Crescent Road, which laid on a sumptuous afternoon tea.

And MasterChef presenter Gregg, one of Theo’s idols, was there to surprise her with the trophy and took tea with the family.

They were also chauffeured around town throughout the day courtesy of Bentley Motors in Southborough.

Taylor Made Dreams founder Suzi Mitchell said: “It’s always a pleasure to grant a special wish for our poorly children and their families.

“A big thank you, as always, to our local businesses and contacts for helping us to arrange such a wonderful day that Theo and her family enjoyed hugely and will remember.”

Taylor Made Dreams is one of the finalists in the Groundwork Community Awards out of more than 750 entries nationwide.

It is contending with two others in the best community group contribution to improving health and wellbeing category, and also the overall People’s Choice Award.

Groundwork is a federation of charities aiming to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.

The awards recognise grass-roots community groups and leaders who make a difference to people’s quality of life.
